The Templeton Gate - Authors - Clifford D. Simak (2978 words)
Simak displays an unwavering faith in humanity, and coupled with the pastoral views of the land around the house and the simple beauty of the untamed wilderness, produces a novel of quiet strengths and boundless optimism.
Simak's next novel, Out of Their Minds (1970) would also prove to be primarily comical, with the main character's discovery that all things are possible, with mythical and fictional figures coming to life at the merest thought of their existence.
It is highly possible that Clifford Simak is a relatively unknown name to the majority of recent SF readers, and that of course would be a shame if it is true.
